The PM agreed that the two countries need to organise a session of the Vietnam – Mozambique inter-governmental committee soon to discuss cooperation in the fields of each side’s strength.

He said he wishes Mozambique create conditions for Vietnamese businesses to cooperate and invest in coal and gas fields while supporting Vietnam’s telecom firms to invest in Mozambique.

Besides, Vietnam will send a prestigious enterprise in agriculture to Mozambique, he added.

Ambassador Pene thanked Vietnam for its sending experts to help Mozambique in agriculture, especially rice cultivation. Thanks to the help, Mozambique’s rice productivity risoe from 2 tonnes to 7 tonnes per hectare. Each year, Mozambique cultivates two rice crops instead of one in the past, he added.

The diplomat expressed his wish to boost cooperation with Vietnam in the important areas of health care, education and energy./.
